Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The main objective of the study was to investigate the role of C-reactive protein on the relationship between Bisphenol A & Cardiovascular Disease, where the C-reactive protein has been taken as a moderating variable.

METHODS: Quantitative research design has been incorporated for evaluating the role of C-reactive protein. Similarly, non-parametric Spearman correlation test has been conducted to assess the relationship between BPA and CVD. The data was taken out from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which was collected in the year 2009-2010.

RESULTS: The impact of urinary Bisphenol A on serum C-reactive protein was found statistically significant according to the Spearman correlation coefficient, rs= .06, p = .015. The scatter plots found that there is no relationship between the two variables; this observation held true after filtering the outliers from the plot.

CONCLUSION: The results might have positive change by contributing to the body of knowledge on bisphenol A and by rising scientific examination of substances used by the people in the daily life. Further research to identify other possible causes of CVD and elevation of CRP is recommended.
